This is a wonderful park. It doesn't get very crowded. The only thing I find annoying is that a lot of professional photographers use the beach to take pictures of families. So all over the beach they are set up to photograph families. It's not horrible, or else I wouldn't give it a 5 star rating. The beach is beautiful... More

One of the most beautiful beaches in the country. They have all types of campsites plus a large coastal dune lake. The hiking trails are great and very unique. Plenty of great restaurants in the area.

This park only has a few campsites, so book far in advance if you can. I was only able to get one night here, but it was worth it! It's a beautiful, secluded camping area. I felt somewhat 'alone' out there, even though I had campers all around me. It was nice and quiet, and the area inside the tent... More

As a family it is important for us to be in nature. Grayton State Park has an Amazing beach and easy bike trails. We do our best to avoid the busy beach spots and find this to be the ideal sanctuary for us. We will be back again!

There's a reason why many of the local professional photographers use this beach for their background setting for family, wedding, couples photos. The beach is nearly pristine, beautiful sunrises and sunsets, not crowded at all (unless maybe spring break?? as Ive read in other reviews). If you're looking for a wide, flat and groomed beach then stick to the hotel... More

Just stay in the park and don't venture close to the hotels on either end in March. The Spring Breakers RUIN the beach with litter and I don't understand how these towns (Panama City, Destin, etc.) get away with underage drinking and disgusting littering.

Bring your camper and relax for a few days. Walk the beach or ride along the bike path exploring. Quiet and off of 30A. Very nice for a stay to enjoy Florida without the t-shirts shops and tacky souvenirs.

I have stayed in many Florida state parks and this one, by far, is my favorite. The campground has two loops; the newer loop has full hook-ups. Access to the beach is just under a mile from the campground. The beach is long and wonderful for walking, with fine, white sand and lovely dunes. Behind the dunes is a great... More

If you are a camper and your looking for a great camping spot on the white beaches in the Destin Area. This is it. The only reason I difny give it five stars is the walk to the camp site is too far for most people. The price is fair considering the price of hotels in the area. It's facilities... More
